I’ve rewritten this post at least three times because I just don’t know where to begin. Yes, Martha Stewart was amazing and all of her staff continue to outdo themselves. I think I used this phrase the first time I was lucky enough to go to a Martha event…it was by far the coolest experience in this little blogger’s life! But even beyond that, I met some of the craftiest, most creative, most amazing ladies that I can’t wait for all of you to meet. Scroll down through the pictures below, read the captions, and please pop over to these other very talented ladies’ blogs. Get to know them because I’ve got some great ideas in the works, and you’ll be seeing them soon!
Nikki, In Stitches
After a welcome breakfast, we were lucky enough to listen to Terri Trespicio, Senior Editor of Whole Living Magazine. Not only is she hysterically funny, but she is so down to earth. She talked to us about healthy living, and I was amazed at how in-tune she was with what were realistic expectations for a healthy lifestyle.
Followed by a presentation by Terri Shapiro, Executive Director of Brand and Media Relations at Deluxe Corporation. The insight she gave us into public relations was priceless, and she added a ton of things to my to-do list!
Later in the day, we FINALLY got to hear from Martha!
I just want to note here, that I thought this was hysterically funny…Does Martha Stewart REALLY need a name tag??
Then we headed back to MSLO headquarters for a few more workshops!
Now, for the really fun part!
Take a look at these beautiful and talented ladies I met!
Aimee (an adorably cute, super creative, and full of energy like you wouldn’t believe event planner) and Jenn (a birthday party guru and the sweetest person you’ll ever meet) in awe at the aisles of sprinkles at New York Cakes and Baking Supply. Did you ever meet someone and think “It feels like we’ve been friends forever!”….yup, that’s Jenn!
(From left, back row)
Laura from Eye Candy Event Details….this girls got more fun party ideas than anyone I’ve met!
Terri from Terri’s Treasures…Terri is the baker in the group, and if you love cake pops like almost everyone else in America, you MUST check her out!
Kristen from 3 Little Birds Boutique…A special note here: Kristen could be the funniest girl I’ve ever met, and her hand stamped jewelry is gorgeous. I’ve already ordered one piece, and have many more on my “must have!” list!
(OK, twist my arm, I’ll give them one more shout-out!!)
And one more, because her sewing skills put me to shame, and she could be the most knowledgable and business smart woman I met the whole time: Heather from The Sewing Loft!
And now, because you’ve scrolled ALL the way to the bottom, and read this whole post that is way, way too long…a moment of zen. Look at this wall of ribbon at M&J Trimming…HEAVEN!
